I went thru a divorce 5 yrs ago and gave my ex husband the house with a quit claim deed. He was to refinance the house and get it out of my name. He died and never refinanced it, now the mortgage company is trying to garnish my wages. The house was foreclosed on and sold in sheriff sale and I was never notified until 5 yrs later and now they say I am responsible for the remaining amount. Why am I responsible for this? it is not my fault he didn't refinance it.

The mortgage company isn't bound by your divorce. You're on the hook.
